I just booked our band for the relay for life survivors ball at the vancouver hilton in Clark County, Washington State. Very happy to donate our time to the 700+ cancer survivors and thier guests in the Vancouver area. The lady that booked us was thrilled that I am a cancer survivor. I am less thrilled to be a cancer survivor but it does beat the alternative. (Cancer statistic) Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone at this site would be from that area and attending? Todd

Don't worry Todd,
You are still a statistic in my book....lol. Just a different catagory that I will leave undefined. Great job, buddy! And while you are there, let them all know we are on their team. I just wrote in my journal that when you see the pink ribbons, think also of the blue ones. It's a great reminder and you are most qualified to say it.

You know I would go if I could. I would love to play with you guys. After 30+ years plucking and sliding the strings we should have something common. Break a leg and have a great time.
 
PS: What day and time?
